Profile in Courage: Mitt Romney Voted to Convict Trump



"The great question the Constitution tasks Senators to answer is whether the president committed an act so extreme and egregious that it rises to the level of a high crime and misdemeanor.
Yes, he did.
The president asked a foreign government to investigate his political rival. The president withheld vital military funds from that government to press it to do so. The president delayed funds for an American ally at war with Russian invaders. The president’s purpose was personal and political. Accordingly, the president is guilty of an appalling abuse of public trust.
What he did was not “perfect.” No, it was a flagrant assault on our electoral rights, our national security, and our fundamental values.
Corrupting an election to keep oneself in office is perhaps the most abusive and destructive violation of one’s oath of office that I can imagine. It’s what autocrats do." 
- Mitt Romney      Feb 5, 2020

Eminem's Call to Put An End to Senseless Gun Violence





.

put out a powerful song and video #Darkness w/ a call to put "an end to senseless gun violence."





[Chorus]

I don't wanna be alone, I don't wanna be

I don't wanna be alone in the darkness

I don't wanna be alone in the darkness

I don't wanna be alone in the darkness anymore

(Hello darkness, my old friend)



[Verse 1]

Here I am, alone again

Can't get out of this hole I'm in

It's like the walls are closin' in

You can't help me, no one can

I can feel these curtains closin'

I go to open 'em

But something pulls 'em closed again

(Hello darkness, my old friend)

Feels like I'm loathing in Las Vegas

Haven't got the vaguest why I'm so lost

But I'd make you this small wager

If I bet you I'll be in tomorrow's paper

Who would the odds favor?

(Hello darkness, my old friend)

I'm so much like my father, you would think that I knew him

I keep pacin' this room, Valium and chase it with booze

One little taste, it'll do

Maybe I'll take it and snooze, then tear up the stage in a few

(Hello darkness, my old friend)

Fuck the Colt 45, I'ma need somethin' stronger

If I pop any caps, it better be off of vodka

Round after round after round, I'm gettin' loaded (Haha)

That's a lot of shots, huh? (Double entendre)

(Hello darkness, my old friend)



[Chorus]

And I don't wanna be alone in the darkness (Yeah)

I don't wanna be alone in the darkness

I don't wanna be alone in the darkness anymore

(Hello darkness, my old friend)



[Verse 2]

Now I'm starin' at the room service menu off a Benzo

I can hear the music continue to crescendo

I can see the whole fuckin' venue from my window

That's when you know you're schizo

(Hello darkness, my old friend)

'Cause I keep peekin' out the curtain from the hotel

The music is so loud

But it's almost as though I don't hear no sound

I should get ready for the show now

Wait is this the whole crowd? I thought this shit was sold out

(Hello darkness, my old friend)

But it's only the opening act, it's early, don't overreact

Then something told me relax

And just hope for the show to be packed

Don't wanna hit the stage before they fill each row to the max

'Cause that'd be totally wack

You can't murder a show nobody's at

(Hello darkness, my old friend)

But what if nobody shows? Panic mode

'Bout to snap and go motherfuckin' wacko at any second

'Bout to cancel the show just as fans below rush the entrance

Plan is a go to wreck shit, cameras in all directions

(Hello darkness, my old friend)

The press is about to go ape shit bananas on all the networks

Commando with extra clips, I got ammo for all the hecklers

I'm armed to the teeth, another Valium, fall off the bed

Hit the ground and crawl to the dresser

Alcohol on my breath as I reach for the Scope

I'm blackin' out, I'm all out of meds

With them benzodiazepines gone

Now it's just magazines sprawled out on the floor

Fuck the media, I'm goin' all out, this is war

(Hello darkness, my old friend)



[Chorus]

And I don't wanna be alone in the darkness (Yeah)

I don't wanna be alone in the darkness

I don't wanna be alone in the darkness anymore



[Verse 3]

People start to show up, time to start the show up

(Hello darkness, my old friend)

It's 10:05 PM and the curtain starts to go up

And I'm already sweatin' but I'm locked and loaded

For rapid fire spittin' for all the concert-goers

Scopes for sniper vision, surprise from out of nowhere

As I slide the clip in from inside the hotel

Leanin' out the window, going Keyser Söze

Finger on the trigger, but I'm a licensed owner

With no prior convictions, so loss, the sky's the limit

So my supplies infinite, strapped like I'm a soldier

Got 'em hopping over walls and climbing fences

Some of them John Travolta, staying alive by inches

(Hello darkness, my old friend)

Cops are knockin', oh fuck, thought I blocked the entrance

Guess show time is over

No suicide note, just a note for target distance

But if you'd like to know the reason why I did this

You'll never find a motive, truth is I have no idea

I am just as stumped, no signs of mental illness

Just tryin' to show ya the reason why we're so fucked

'Cause by the time it's over, won't make the slightest difference

(Hello darkness, my old friend)



[Chorus]

And I don't wanna be alone in the darkness

I don't wanna be alone in the darkness

I don't wanna be alone in the darkness anymore

(Hello darkness, my old friend)



[Outro]

WOMAN: Yeah, we do have some breaking news from the Associated Press right now, just gonna bring that up because we are hearing we have told you that the shooter is dead and we have just learned that police are saying that the Las Vegas shooter killed himself

MAN: That is the bartender there at Mandalay Bay and I believe we're going to hear more

WOMAN: Yeah, we just wanted to share that with you, you can see behind me here, this is what he looks like, now we did just tell you that police just earlier, Metro was telling us that he killed himself inside the hotel room
